I need help with my diet. I am 19 years old. 5'3" around 156 lbs now. I competed in 3 powerlifting contest with the ADAU. I think I know how to train effectively, i just need diet help. I've added complexes to the end of my workouts from http://www.wannabebig.com/training/c...-for-fat-loss/
I'm going to Air Force basic training on March 1st, and i'm trying to slim down and be in better running/cardio shape.
I want the absolute simplest diet. I don't care if its eating the same thing over and over agian
can i just eat boneless skinless baked chicken (around 1.5 lbs), whole grain oatmeal (4 servings), and bananas(1-2) all day. (thats basically what i've been doing) I also drink green tea and alot of water.
sometimes I make chicken tacos with whole wheat tortillas. they're low carb high fiber tortillas. lettuce tomato, onion, and 5 calorie taco sauce.
anything i'm missing here? extra foods? any advice at all is appreciated.
edit: I also take a multi-vitamin, joint health, fish oil, and creatine monohydrate. (1 pill each and 5g of creatine)

I dont think diet is going to be the main issue here. Sure you can eat clean, but its not going to make much of a difference as long as you are eating somewhat half way decent.
You are confusing being lean/skinny with being conditioned. One has more to do with looks, the other with performance.
You'd be better off eating somehwat decent and working on your running/jogging and other conditioning.

somewhat what I eat...
PS- Or better yet, just drop the banana since you're probably already getting enough protein. When I stopped eating 1-2 bananas a day I could see the fat loss results within days.

I didnt realize that bananas had that many carbs
maybe an apple would be better? in place of a banana
Well yeah, that's actually what I do. I eat an apple a day. A good sized apple is still probably going to be 25-30g of carbs so I stick to the medium size ones. I'd like to eat more than that for anti-oxidant stuff but the multivitamin and whole grain bread I eat all day pretty much jams me as full of that as can be...
Question: Is the OP a male or female?
Also, are you actually going to be flying aircrafts, and if so do you need to be much less than 156lbs?

I'm gonna follow basically what I posted first and incorporate more cardio, running, and complexes into my training
I've been lifting 5 days per week, also doing cardio and complexes
only eating fish, chicken, egg whites, oatmeal, and drinking alot of water. occasional green tea from tea bags. still taking fish oil, multivitamin, and joint pill
didnt get apples yet
haven't took creatine in 4-5 days either. maybe resulting in water loss? i have been drinking a ton of water though
as long as im eating enough protein, and i think i am, does it matter how many carbs i get? fat too?
i'm at probably 60-110 carbs just guessing
i get fat from fish and oatmeal. ate a few pistaccios one day too
possibly alot of sodium too. from hot sauce. sodium mean anything?

Sounds like you are on the right track. Give it a few more weeks and see how it goes.
